Are there any examples of dissectors written in Lua that have been translated to C? I'm a beginner and have written a dissector in Lua - now that it does what I want it to, I'd like to write it in C. I know about the development guide and the README, but was looking for a more tangible example to put it in context.

You could try visiting the Sharkfest 2016 Retrospective page and looking at Graham Bloice's presentation (and related materials) titled, "Writing a Dissector: 3 Way to Eat Bytes". When you unzip the .7z archive (using 7-zip), you'll not only have the presentation but a sample dissector written in C and Lua as well as in wsgd.
